Suited For Summer

Posted on: June 27, 2024 – Words by

The first sign of sunshine sparks the ever-growing list of social occasions to mark on your calendar. And, naturally, the question arises: what should you wear? To help you make the most of your many warm-weather events, we’ve created a tailored style guide showcasing our linen and seersucker suits to ensure you show up and show off during each occasion.

What To Wear To: Manage The Five-A-Side

Regardless of whether you are sitting at home shouting at the TV or on the sidelines at the Sunday five-a-side game, let's face it: you consider yourself a manager. And if you feel fit for the role, you should dress the part. After all, the beautiful game deserves an equally beautiful suit, and our Midnight Linen Suit is a game changer. Of course, the secret to any great football manager is a knitted polo. Our Ecru Naples Polo Shirt is guaranteed to bring home the win. Or, at the very least, earn you a few compliments.

What To Wear To: The Work Summer Party

You’re known as the best-dressed guy in the office, right? We thought so. That’s why you’re here, after all. The work summer party is the perfect occasion to cement your title. Black and navy suits are always essential to have, of course. But for a menswear office legend like yourself, our Rust Linen Suit is the way to go. And paired with the Wax x Oscar Dean shades, you’ll be all the talk amongst your admiring colleagues.

What To Wear To: After-Dinner Drinks

Warm weather and after-dinner drinks are a match made in heaven. They're also the perfect excuse to dress up for an occasion; as if you need one. Our Black Suit is a sophisticated choice for both formal and casual affairs. And when you're enjoying a tipple on a warm summer’s evening, you'll be thanking us that it's made in a breathable seersucker fabric. It also makes for the ideal base to add a pop of colour, which you'll be in no short supply with our abstract tile Didcot Shirt. You're suitably dressed for a cocktail on a rooftop or a pint at the pub - cheers!

What To Wear To: The Balmy BBQ

If there's one occasion that’s guaranteed this summer, it’s that there will be BBQs aplenty. You’re probably already a couple deep at this point. Step up the dress code for your next grilling get-together with our Pale Green Linen Suit. And since it’s a garden affair, our Botanical Print Didcot Shirt is a no-brainer to finish the look. And don't worry, you'll still be the best-dressed guest with an apron worn over the top - let him cook!

What To Wear To: Visit The Amalfi Coast

You can’t always guarantee the weather at home will be sunny. Or hot. Or resemble anything close to a summer’s day. So, a trip abroad to a more dependably balmy location is a smart move. Our breathable Navy Seersucker Suit is made to be worn strolling through the Italian streets. Of course, you’re on holiday, so for a more casual approach, swap a shirt for our striped Dean T-shirt. And if the blazing sun is becoming a bit much, chuck on a Wax cap - we don't want you looking like a lobster now, do we?

What To Wear To: Show Up The Groom

Sure, it is their big day. But let’s be honest, it’s also an opportunity to dress to impress, and our Natural Linen Suit will ensure you will. Consider the natural colourway as a blank canvas to have fun with your shirting. We went for a classic pinstripe option, courtesy of our Shelly Shirt, which covers you whether it’s a city ceremony, a countryside affair or a destination wedding. Even if your duties aren’t that of the best man, you can still be the best-dressed man at the wedding. Sorry, groom.
